To be true to this mission the hospital team relies on several individuals, where each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

Thanks VCA Angel Animal Hospital
Woody Daniels from North Park

I have been coming to VCA Angel Animal Hospital since 1994 (before it was "VCA"). Diane Defenbaugh "Dr. D", Caroline, Debbie, Daniel, Charlene, Katy & Ana: all helped "raise" my wonderful Yellow Labrador Retriever, "Buddy" from 5 1/2 weeks to 14 1/2 years. Everything from "puppyhood" to "advanced senior". A true testament to the care given to an 85 pound lab to live such a long and healthy life. Dr. "D" & "family" were always there for both Buddy and me. No matter what-right to the end. Such a magificent place.

My newly adopted yellow lab "Toby" is quickly learning how lucky he is to be cared for by such special people. I can't imagine going anywhere else or having anyone else care for my "best friend"
